Honestly, take away the first two songs and you've got a solid five star album. Not that the first two tracks are bad. They're probably 4 stars. Balance of Power has always been good, especially on Perfect Balance but this album is unbelievable. Heathen Machine is a little less Power and a little more straight Melodic Metal than previous releases and that's all to the better. There's enough good Power Metal bands around and we could always use more good Melodic Metal bands and Balance of Power is developing into one of the best.

Balance of Power has a new singer named John something or other, who on a couple tracks, reminds me of, don't laugh, Queensryche's Geoff Tate.

If you like good heavy and melodic metal, dn't hesitate, pick this jewel up. You won't be sorry.

This CD absolutely does not deserve one star based on the fact that Lance King left, and John K took over! All those who are crying should seek out the many other projects that Lance is involved with. Heathen Machine is a stand alone album; different and darker than all previous BOP releases. It is also HEAVIER than the others. John is an incredible singer! The first 2 songs kick major butt, so don't skip them based on what some might have written.

I like Sym X, TNT, anything by DC Cooper, anything by Toni Harnell (westworld, starbreaker), anything by Jorn Lande, and I like this album. I have the previous BOP albums with Lance King and like them very much. This album took a few turns to grow on me (it's a little dark) but after some time I found it great. The front and middle of this project is awesome while it dwindles a little on the back half. Let me tell you though, tracks 1, 4,and 5 are the best I have heard ever since Savatage's ... album is escaping me right now... oh.. Power of the Night album (crack my cranium and stuck on you stuff). The production is not as clean as on previous albums, but BOP has clearly straight lined their line up and come up with awesome potential. Maybe next time they'll select a happier subject for their album... I hope so.

**** - FOUR STARS

=================

This is a very impressive release. It's powerful, and very melodic in nature. This band almost sounds like a mixture of Queensryche / Maiden. I enjoyed every minute of "Heathen Machine". I'm just angry that I never bought it sooner.

IMPRESSIVE METAL. ALL METAL FANS BUY THIS....

I've heard this bands previous releases.Ten More Tales and A Perfect Balance.Not bad stuff.Always at least 1 or 2 kick a$$ tracks.
But one thing always bothered me.They kinda lingered between AOR and Power Metal.And the singer was'nt right 4The band.
Looks like I was'nt the only one who thought that because this album sees the debut of John K on vocals.And like the previous reviewer stated,he sounds remarkably like Geoff Tate.
And gone are the attempts at Pop/Metal.This is a Heavy Metal record.A well written and performed one.The actual promo sticker on the CD pacaging says"The follow up to Empire". Strange thing to say I thought,this is'nt Queensryche?
But after listening to it,you'll see that while the guy does sound like Geoff,the music is still Balance of Power.With a heavier edge.And combined they've created a sound of their own.
I think all fans of Queensryche,Dream Theater and even Savatage will find this to be an excellent album.
Best tracks are Heathen Machine,No Place Like Home,The Eyes of the World and Necessary Evil,a killer closing to the disc.
I've put this in my Top 10 of 2003,so you should put it in your stereo.Enjoy.
